ISIS gain ground against Syrian Army by taking Shaer gas field.

(Homs) In early July 2014, at least 115 Syrian troops, guards and workers” were killed when the Islamic State overran Shaer  gas field. The Syrian army quickly reclaimed Shaer
However, the Islamic State didn’t give up and In lateOctober 2014, the group launched an effort to regain control of the gas field and the surrounding area. By early November, with over 200 dead they gave up.

Well these past few days with the Syrians concentrating on the situation in Aleppo, ISIS sent in their thugs again and this time, they have captured over 50% of the gas fields, overrunning 13 checkpoints , but more worryingly they have captured huge amounts of arms and ammunition. Here are a few pictures of what they have captured:
